We've been quite busy since we have gotten here. Friday night we went to watch the horses race with some of Dan's family. It was my first time at the racetrack and I had a ton of fun even though I didn't bet. I should have brought my camera but the weather was crummy and I left it at home. There are also slot machines in the casino too but we didn't stay long as it was sensory overload with all of the lights and bells dinging. We will be going back next week to see one of my favorite bands from the 80s....The Commodores. Yep, I was a disco junkie back in the day and can't wait to hear "Brick House"!
Dan's been busy helping his Mom with some chores she needed taken care of around the farm. We also had a leak in the RV that took about 2 days to fix. It's been raining almost every day since we got here and although the leak appears to be fixed, we need it to rain to make sure. ;-) And, of course, now it is dry!
I have been helping Dan's Mom with her flower gardens. Let's just say that I am in Heaven......
|The Hummingbirds really like this garden!|
|The Foxgloves are gorgeous!|
And here is the vegetable garden....
There are all types of yummy fruits and vegetables planted on the farm including rhubarb, chives, tomatos, and beans. Of course, my favorite are the berries....blue, straw, black and rasp! YUM!! I can't wait for the berries to ripen so I can add that to the list of my work-camping duties.

Last night, we finally got a break in the rain so we got out the mule cart.
Notice that it is really only a single seat cart. Well, on the way down to the river, we both shared the seat. On the way back, I stood on the back of the cart the first half of the ride and then I got to drive so Dan got to stand. We went zipping down to the flats....
Back on the mule, we headed back to explore some more.
Way in the background you can see the silos and barn. Here is an up close picture!
We rode on the mule up to the horse barn and started looking around...
When Dan rotary mows some of the farm, I really really want to ride with him and drive the tractor. Now that is my idea of fun!
Those of you that know Dan well, know that he loves bikes! Whether it's the Harley or pedal bikes, he likes them. Check out this bike!
It's Dan's Schwinn from when he was a kid! You can tell it got a lot of use back in the day! We had a great time exploring.
